AMD is reportedly stockpiling a big quantity of Radeon RX 7900 ‘RDNA 3’ graphics cards in preparation for their introduction next month. According to MyDrivers, who cites the upstream supply chain, AMD has stocked up on a substantial volume of Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards based on the RDNA 3 GPU architecture that will be ready for introduction next month on December 13th. According to reports, the red team has been raising orders of Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards so that gamers can buy them relatively easily at launch.
According to the rumour, the initial supply of AMD Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards, which includes both Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT models, will not be tiny, and will be significantly greater than the supply of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards at launch. Over the last few days, we’ve learned that NVIDIA has shipped a total of 160,000 Ada GPUs, of which 81.25% are for the RTX 4090 (AD102) GPU and the remaining 18.75% are for the RTX 4080 (AD103) GPU.
Although the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 was completely sold out at launch, it can still be purchased at retail stores with some searching. Despite coming in smaller quantities, the RTX 4080 is still widely available at many retailers. Additionally, the card has been scalped, and there are numerous postings on eBay. The RTX 4080’s predicament is mostly a result of its outrageous price tag of $1199.9 US as well as AMD’s guarantee of competitive performance per dollar and watt against the RTX 4080.
Users are very interested in understanding the final results of these two devices before they make their purchasing decision because the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the RTX 4080 are pitted directly against each other in AMD’s marketing slides.
The Radeon RX 7900 series, particularly the $999 US Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card, could experience an increase in demand if AMD truly manages to undercut the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card in the final GPU reviews (at MSRP).
